Sex Trafficking

Grand Forks, ND – Law enforcement says the amount of sex-trafficking in small towns is surprising.

A new study from the University of Minnesota took data from Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The study reveals that sex-buying habits are higher than you might think. It says buyers are mostly middle-aged, married, white men. And the traffickers are using social media to find girls.

“They are gaining trust slowly whether that be through facebook or text messages or other social media apps or through a friend of a friend that they met at a party or something like that and slowly overtime it may start as a relationship with a trafficker someone they can trust some stability in their life and then they’re asked to do stuff related to sex trafficking,” Logan Kassa with the CVIC said.
